Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I made a 23 hour layover in Kuala Lumpur, and visited a gorgeous infinity pool since I did not have a chance to see the Marina Bay Sands infinity pool in Singapore. It was pouring when I got there, so I spent most of my time at the pool. I’ve visited Malaysia often when I lived in Singapore, so as short as my stop was this time around, I’ve compiled a few things to do in Malaysia.

Fun Fact: Petronas Twin Towers used to be the tallest skyscraper in the world.

When to go: November - February is dry on the western side. April - October is dry on the eastern side. The weather is hot and humid yearlong, with tropical rain showers.

It’s time for adventure! Keep time, and look stylish at the same time.


Where to Stay: 

Regalia Suites for the best infinity pool access on the low. It’s on AirBnb. Use this referral credit to get $40 off your booking.

Modes of Transportation:
Take the “KLIA ekspres” from the KL international airport to the main station, then take an Uber to Regalia Suites for a few dollars.

How Many Days to Spend: 1-2 days

What to Wear: Keep in mind that this country is extremely humid, and hot, so dress comfortable and accordingly. Since this is a Muslim country, you will find that women are more covered up, but tourists are not required to cover up.
